and the defense and death of that industry can achieve in engineering. the site is insufficient and it wouldn't make sense to build a site so i think it is a rather simple question and what was learned in this particular instance was that the assumptions, the design assumptions, the factors with regard to externals defense that could occur didn't match the event that did occur. this was a once in a thousand year event that no one imagined, and the unimaginable happened. so the thought that must go into the engineering factors associated with construction in any disaster region needs to be executed very well. >> next question is a net fishery. the question is what is or should japan do to assess the long-term state of contamination and isn't affected? >> that's a great question and especially given the size of the fishery and the moment the fishery and the affected area is closed and there was a recent paper not so long ago showing that the level was sent really dropping as quickly as people had expected and the reason it wasn't expected is because we know little about the fate and transport o
the board spending cuts, having defense, half in nondefense. republicans don't like it, democrats don't like it. that creates an opportunity. there's also the question of how long do you extend the debt limit. i think it would be incredibly foolish to renege on the debt of the united states. it would be enormous consequences. that is a losing proposition for everyone. but how long we extend the debt limit, that is open to negotiation. and between the two of how long you extend the debt limit, and number two, how you deal with the sequestered, gives you an opportunity for another attempt at a grand bargain. revenue and spending we strength, especially on the mandatory programs to get america back on track. we can do. we done much tougher things before. and this is our next opportunity to put america in a preeminent position in the world. if we solve this problem, there is nothing that can stop the united states from continuing to be the most important and dominant country in the world. thank you.

the great council, criminal defense working side by side, then having them available to counsel you and for the c-span viewers who may not know why if you could elaborate and explain, as i've been able to understand it there were incentives for those that entered the job corps to be assigned prosecutors but they were to be stationed elsewhere and wasn't quite the rewards of a track that ended with flat officer for the senior judge and now you created that and it seems to me that both victim and the accused with falsely or rightly we want to have a system that convict someone on a fair manner that seems to me to be maybe the most important performance of the past few years, and my vision of what it takes to learn at a great larger side and you are a great lawyer and we may have been on the opposite side of an important case at one point, but cal -- what is the early result, and the other, how much do you think that will tell, can help, and what kind of patients do we need before we can see the effect of that solution? stat i appreciate your question and frankly you have done as good
thompson archer. it is time, archer said, for all good southerners to stand his words united in defense of the god given right to own the african. end quote. the official secession documents just put the same sentiment in more polite legal language. now, eight other slave states who had closer ties with the union remained within the union, and those are the states colored on the map in front of you in gray and light blue. but four of those states, the ones in gray -- arkansas, the lower south out the door unless the newly-elected president explicitly abandoned the platform on which he had just been elected. lincoln, they declared, must guarantee that slavery could in the future expand into all or part of the federal territories. and, by the way, not only those territories currently held, but also a territories yet -- also territories yet to be acquired. and that demand was made with an eye on eventually acquiring cuba, parts of central america and other parts of the caribbean which were expected to be turned into slave-holding territories and slave-holding eventually states. if lincoln
misunderstood. we tend to think of as defensive move. they were losing in the union. they decided to, you know, take this gamble. they did take a gamble. they were only slave holding class in the 19th century war who did it. the brazilian, cuban didn't. why did they do it? that's an interesting question. i try to explain a little bit in the book. what was mind set. it's completely fascinating to get inside the mind of the incredibly powerful not just in terms of social power and wealth but political power of this planter elite. they were used to running the united states and they really did not doubt their ability to do this separately. so the confidence is there. and a big piece of the story. >> was there overwhelming support for succession among the south. >> no. it's a really interesting political campaign. when i, i mean, i've written about it three or four times in my life. i have never seize to be amazed. it's as interesting as my campaign in modern history. karl rove would have been impressed. they needed , i mean, most of the elite, the political elite, you know, only a third of white
at every part of the budget. you have to look at defense spending. you have to clearly focused on health care costs, which go faster than the economy. we have to fix our social security system, which makes promises bigger than what we can pay out on the road. we have to raise revenues. we started down the path, but we haven't looked had to do about overhauling tax system, which would you want to raise revenue, you could do in could do in the way bad for the economy hallway discussion helps increase competitiveness and modernizes our tax system. so we know what the answers are. were going to fight it the specifics, but we don't know at what point the political system is going to be willing to make all those traces, which are difficult compromise on both sides and put this issue to rest so we can go back to all the other things were going to fight about. the fact you can sue a policy solutions are more passed the tennis doesn't matter, but everybody recognized the threat that she can't possibly imagine a real growth, and without a sense of stability from knowing what changes obesity you ca
and democratic defense is now just too, it's become wrapped around the axle of polarization, of ideological debates. i think the one thing we can take away from this whole situation is that bullies win. as much as we believe -- i mean, chavez is nothing more than -- [speaking spanish] i mean, he just can, basically, call people out and humiliate them and bash them, and it does manage to intimidate governments and leaders and multilateral institutions. and i think that's the problem. and i think, you know, we all fear what could happen, but, you know, even if -- i'm not, i don't think the multilateral community or the united states or anyone should have called what happened -- [inaudible] but the fact that no one actually dared any questions about the levels of polarization in venezuela, what this meant for respect for the letter, if not certainly the spirit of the constitution, on what this meant for the potential for conflict, um, was i think very sad. and worse, this is a government that is very good -- [audio difficulty] but in terms of consistently named the supreme court violating its
for sale on the internet would be criminal if you facilitated that. and the affirmative defense to the crime would be if you had in-person age verification. that would be an affirmative defense for companies like back page. back page went to the court, cited the federal communications decency act which has provisions to prevent, you know, internet companies or those doing things online from being held liable for the actions of others. and they said we were completely preempted from the field and their freedom of speech rights trumped, this new criminal law. and unfortunately, they prevailed. now, i don't think congress when it passed the federal communications decency act meant to allow companies to with kind of knowing disregard for the effects of their practices to enable this. but this is the challenge we face still and that we're preempted from the field. so we're going to try to go back again and work on this. backpage.com makes millions of dollars a year off of this practice. it's one of their primary practices s escort advertising, and they refuse to stop it. other online
movement defense politics as any other team. the exit polls and other tools people define themselves by two to one to the rose, around 40% to 20% of the population goes up and then depending what is happening. it's safe to say the country is still separate. it's about cohesive and together as it has been. i'm part of that group made up of about 25 or 30 leaders of the conservative movement and includes libertarians, includes christian conservatives, foreign-policy conservatives, and we pretty much get along on everything. i don't think there's very many things we disagree on. we discussed every issue that comes along every week we have two meetings a year african heads of 100 conservative organization. i can say they are as enthusiastic as either. the movement continues to grow. there's always new young writers coming along. authors periodicals and things that are vibrant for any movement it's going to stay alive. generally speaking given the ups and nasa politics is as good a shape as it is there have. i'm the chairman of the intercollegiate studies institute. others of you have participat
that were run by the chavez party are former military officials, including four ministers of defense, who are now governors of their respective states. several of them are all along the office of the control campaign list because of their work with the farc so we have a situation where people are in control of things, so that even if henry embrey de four e elected president in this election it's the opposite -- he's the head of the opposition who ran against chavez and got a 45% to 55% but we are talking about to the even if he was to win, he still would have institutions that are controlled by the chavez government including the supreme court which we just pointed out, including the legislature that is dominated by the chavez government party and every every institution through and through because of the opposition workers that struck in 2002 and in 2003 were dismissed. so we have a situation where chavez will go on just because the nature of the detail of the beast is so rooted in all of the institutions that were indeed created and restructured by chavez. >> at some point that runs its
that was well stated. essentially if you have an area that is frown disaster, and the defense in-depth that on industry can achieve an engineering site there is insufficient, then it wouldn't make sense to build a site there. i think it's really a rather simple question. and i think what was learned in this particular instance was that the assumptions the design assumptions of factors with regard to external events that could occur department match the event that did occur. at the end of the day, this was once in a thousand year event that no one imagined. and the unimaginable happened. so i think the thought that must go in to the engineering factors associated with construction in my disaster prone region needs to be executed very well. >> okay. next question about fisheries. i think -- [inaudible] the question is what is japan what should or is japan doing beyond measuring radio in fish to assess the long-term contamination. is it effected? >> that's a great question, of course. especially given the size in fishery in japan. right now it's closed in the effected area. and ther
of self-defense that the supreme court found you have in the home to when you leave the home, is another question entirely. and i think ultimately probably the -- what happens in congress is not going to be greatly affected, not going to be greatly constrained by what the supreme court will allow. i think the court on things like regulation of particular types of guns, waiting periods, background checks and things like that, is -- will probably be willing to allow that sort of thing. >> i want you all to know i have been sending notes to my wife. those of you who are getting here in time, i know this is a big appointment for you every day. you may not see the news, but chuck todd had a report on what the president is going recommend tomorrow and then i thought i would share that with you. the universal background check, tops the list. prohibition of high-capacity ammunition magazines. prohibition of anything above ten rounds. 0 there were 30 rounds in the magazines in newton, some type of assault weapons ban. and antitraffic and legislation to impose stiffer penalties on gun sellers, and
recognized the fort as a natural defensive place in, spend several days in the forest pouring it with a german veterans. i have seen every single -- the place was 3 registered. there were bunkers. it was a death trap. there were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of mines on the forest floor, there were conifer trees that blocked the sun light. it was very hard to see at times. "dog company" and the second ranger battalion was placed in the fort as a reserve unit. it was there that they would ask the special operations mission that never took place but all men said something to me, our longest day was not d-day. it was december 7, 1944. let me take you now to was the second ranger battalion had as one of their greatest battles. in many ways it is an untold story. a place called bernstein. practically an entire army regiment, tank regiment was tasked with seizing burkestein, it was the farthest penetration into germany. the tank regiments was practically destroyed trying to take burkstein. behind burkstein was hill 400. the only people that were left in reserve was the second r
your system is strong, and when you identify problems, you can use i think the first line of defense needs to be regulatory and supervisory authorities that not only the fed, but other organizations like the occ and the fcic and so on have as well. so you can address these problems using regulatory and supervisory authority. now, having said all that, as i was saying earlier, there's a lot of disagreement about what role of monetary policy plays in creating asset bubbles. it is not a settled issue. there's some people who think that it's an important source of asset bubbles but others do not. our attitude is that we need to be open-mindopen-mind ed about it and to pay close attention to what's happening and to the extent that we can identify problems, we need to address that. the federal reserve was created about 100 years ago now, 1913 was the law. not to be monetary policy, but rather to address financial interest. and that's we did of course in 2008-2009. and it's a difficult task, but i think going forward the fed needs to think about financial stability and monetary economic sta
based on the weather and based on the other defense. i will also just say this parade is a little bit different from what he might see at the macy's day parade. folks don't stop in front of the reviewing stand to do something this is a moving parade and there's too elements important for planning purposes for the media that will be covering that there is obviously the presidential lefcourt, the colonel discussed it goes with the limo down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. there is a short break after that before the parade begins. it's about 20 minutes. this is so the individuals, president, first family can come back out to the stand and be positioned for the first elements of the military and civilian units that are moved by the standard. >> [inaudible] >> you can probably speak to that the best to read >> as you can imagine for the participants in the parade with approximately 10,000 participants, it is a huge physical demands that happens. primero the staging is going to happen at the pentagon parking lot. they will go through secret service screening and security screens co
press club in washington dc. mayor antonio villaraigosa addressed the defense budget, president obama's cabinet picks, and his political future. this is one hour. >> good afternoon and welcome to the national press club. my name is theresa werner and i am 105th president of the national press club. that we are the world leading organization for journalists, committed to our profession's future and programming an event such as this are fostering a free press worldwide. for more information about the national press club, please visit our website at to be ww.press.org. to donate to programs offered to the public for national press club institute, please visit press.org/institute. on behalf of our members worldwide, i would like to welcome our speaker and those attending today's event. our head table includes guest of our speakers as well as working journalist for club members. and if you hear applause in the audience, please note that members of the general public are attending and so is not necessarily evidence of objectivity. i would also like to offer to welcome our public audiences a
can use the first line of defense which is to be regulatory and supervisory authority, not only the fed, the occ and the ftse has as well. it -- having said all that, as i was saying earlier there's a lot of disagreement about what role monetary policy plays increasing as the bubbles. there are people that think it is an important source. our attitude is that we need said identify problems and address that. the federal reserve was created about 100 years ago now, 1913 was the law. not to do monetary policy, but rather, to address financial panics. and that is what we did, of course, in 2009. and it is a difficult task, but i think going forward, the fed needs to think about the financial stability and monetary economic stability as being in some sense, that to keep dollars of what the central bank tries to do we will be working harder and financial stability, using our regulatory supervisory powers trying to strengthen the financial system and if necessary adjust monetary policy as well. i don't think that is the first line of defense. >> okay. this comment comes from twitter. i
in the modern age, this is probably the best defense for liberty. doesn't have to be nationstate exactly. theoretically cut alone in a for flanders could probably exist as a nation, as long as they separated peacefully. they established the democratic republic of flanders to some people are discussing now. this could have been. it's not even theoretical at this point. i have a few call it a nationstate. but it doesn't necessarily mean ethnic nation. in the modern world, this is probably the best institutions, unless you can, but better. i don't think it would be world government, but it would be a form of governance in which they were the structures. an international criminal core, which appeared in national law. in liberty and can send can't be seen as on the american founders, what do they see as most precious going back to the declaration of independence and the constitution, our rights come from god. the rates are protected by a form of government. it could be a smaller form of government, but it would be some form of estate. i think that answered your question. i don't see anything
of 1835 he is eager to win a conviction. by this time, says 410 has come through and come to the defense of her alleged assailant. and she says in the trial that arthur never lifted the ax, she never believed that he intended to hurt her, she felt safe in his presence, that he was just drunk and she wanted the whole thing to go away. well, she was in placable and he didn't listen to this. he managed to get other people to override her testimony, and so are there is convicted and there is only one punishment for that, which is the death penalty, capital punishment. and so, arthur goes on to death row and in january of 1836 is sentenced to die in about a month. and so with the clock ticking, mrs. thorton does something even more unbelievable and was amazing that she testified on arthur's behalf in the criminal
to bring order to the defense, by showing the side, the view of the side that the newspaper supported. so todd mentioned the riots in boston before the war, for instance. the newspapers would occasionally report on those but they would also try to downplay the destruction, or would say that the riots were done -- sailors and boys, people who are not respectable citizens of the town. but those newspapers are still very important because they say what the other people -- [inaudible] learned about those events. >> questions? >> so you're describing the meet was lawyerless lean the same way we have kind of left leaning or right-leaning media. i'm wondering if you found any of your research anything at sort of resemble light opinion pieces are calling the way we know today? do you know when? >> usually page one of the newspapers contained serialized essays that would go on sometimes for multiple issues, where they would provide one perspective of a certain argument, and then sometimes you would also receive in the counter argument immediately following. often in pseudonyms. >> i would say ever
for that series of defense that really changed american politics forever. what the legal standard was going to be. c-span: what happened on the trip to get it? >> guest: more bugs. lots of misbehavior. this time not by dr. king because coretta was living with him if for no other reason but there was just a lot of ego jockeying and wild partying and chasing women around through the rooms the need for much mary met inside the fbi. c-span: was the public aware of it than? >> guest: no, the public was never aware. c-span: argue the first one to write about this? >> guest: i know, other people have written about various parts of it. i am the first person, i think, to write about this -- i think the distressing personal ego conflict with ralph abernathy to the degree that was, and andy young told me that he thought the estrangement with abernathy was a money. he wanted have the money from the nobel peace prize and he called a4a partners and all this and it really kind of choked the relationship. he said that he thought this was the more painful to dr. king than anything. jay edgar hoover might do to hi
. at that defense and some information about reducing the cbo cost curve for medicare, medicaid by 2%. just 2% adoption will face this will reduce the cost curve. over north carolina as we speak, lawsuits flying around. some people went to county fair and got e. coli, et cetera. officials there come epidemiologists as i know nothing of this. we had cre carbo he-man enterobacter ree cia. >> host: i think we've got a point that senator coburn has a response for you. >> guest: a lot of things were not too nice in that we could take the lead on into. there's a recent article out there would save even more than not, talking about the actual function of the sodium potassium pump and diabetes rather than being glucose tolerance is sodium in our diet and tons of money, hundreds of billions of dollars in health care. remember, we spent 17% of our gdp, about $2.6 trillion on health care and a third theater that isn't helping anybody. i will ask my staff for the information you sent on monday and do an inquiry. >> host: john, port st. lucie, florida. please go ahead with your question. >> caller: i hope
social security checks? do not going to pay defense contractors? bus was involved here. >> one more that i've got to go another person. >> democrats as dangerous. is it to the republican strategic advantage to get to that point and get as much as they can out of your party? >> no, because i don't think that is a weapon that will move us. >> so it's not that dangerous -- >> no, it is deemed dangerous. it is very dangerous. it is so dangerous that this country should not play with it and the president essentially says, i don't want to be leveraged that way because you're essentially leveraging this country. not me, but this country. >> republicans in the wyoming legislature want to use the unemployment reform in the payroll tax cut bill from last year so they can drug test unemployed people. the labor department has been issued guidelines, that they will presumably do the same thing. what do you think about? >> the only two provisions that we argued about in the conference committee, right, it only makes appropriate if you can drug test somebody who was let go of allegedly because of
donohue said defenses can be built among different groups, broad reform can be passed through the house. this is about an hour. >> good afternoon. my name is ali noorani, executive director of the national immigration forum and i want to thank everybody for joining us this afternoon for this press conference on the prospects and the growing momentum for immigration reform in the 113th congress. there are many important issues for the one in 13th congress to address. but there are few issues that have a past, a present and future of bipartisan support like immigration reform. today's event is another indicator of a new consensus on immigrants in america that emerge. to forge this new consensus, conservative leaders who hold a bible, wear a badge or own a business have worked over the last two years and gathered in the mountain west, the midwest and southeast to have rational conversations on how to make our nation, or how to move our nation forward on immigration. now, these leaders from the faith, law enforcement this is committees across the country are activating this consensus. today
the second amendment right goes as far as to extend the right of self-defense that the supreme court found that you have in the home to when you leave the home is another question spirally. entirely. and i think, ultimately, probably the what happens in congress is not going to be greatly affected, is not going to be greatly constrained by what the supreme court is going to allow. i think the court on things like regulation of particular types of guns, waiting periods, background checks and things like that is, will probably be willing to -- we'll probably be willing to allow that sort of thing. >> i wallet you all to know that -- i want you all to know that i've opinion sending mash notes to my wife who's away. [laughter] i know this is a big appointment for you every day, you may not see nightly news tonight, but chuck todd actually had a report on what the president's going to recommend tomorrow, and i thought i would share that with you and get your reaction. beginning with you, congressman. universal background check, the president's going to push hard for that. prohibition of high ca
know that defense attorneys love it when there's a delay because the retrograde analysis has more and more contingencies that make it unreliable. >> that may -- >> you would much rather examine the state's expert, if, the sample was taken three hours than if it was after the arrest than one. i mean that's a given . . >> violation of the integrity of your home is somewhat less than the violation of the integrity of your body. >> well, i think that is certainly true, that is certainly true as well -- >> that goes into the reasonableness interpretation. >> right. >> and there is no doubt, i will not deny the state's case will be easier if it does not have to obtain warrant. but this court has recognized that many times in the past. criminal investigations are always easier if the state does not have to comply with the warrant process. >> before your time runs out, the case of the fingernail scraping has been raised. well, that's somebody going to scrape your finger nails, that's as intrusive as a blood test. >> well, i would say three things, your honor. i don't think it is as intrus
there. >> henry -- [inaudible] defense industry north america. another slight german accent. [laughter] bruce, in your introduction you mentioned real and virtual. greg, you shortly touched on it. and i really believe when we talk about manufacturing renaissance, it's a software revolution. and, klaus, you mentioned it. it's your car, you don't use a drill anymore, you use a pc. it's where we send mini cooper, heavy rover up to mars, and the only way to do it is to really test it virtually a thousand times and then it happens. what does that really mean? what does it mean for corporate leaders, but what does it mean for educators? i think if we find this answer, manufacturing is super sexy. >> i think, i tell you, we were just building a gigantic complex, manufacturing complex in saudi arabia. so, and this is the first time that they have a full boxite mine, smelter, and then a rolling mill, and they can ship it right from there. so one of my big scares was how do we find local people and educate them? on 12/12/12, we hit the first metal, and so we are already manufacturing there. and
-first century the office of the secretary of defense thought it was irrelevant to these kinds of things that that office through a seminar based on that book and brought people from the state department, energy department and ibm but in reality the path to understanding these things has been chosen by madelbrot who went beyond conventional mathematics, he ditched the mathematics of his uncle was a great mathematician in paris and ditched the mathematics of equations which was largely there in order to keep us from understanding mass so we went to apply to making weapons and he went back to making that -- what had been since the beginning of mathematics, pictures. he did it using this new tool. he works for a business machine company as a permanent finger and coming up with incredible business machines called computers and got the computers to create pictures based on very simple equations. and began to see the kinds of patterns emerging that will allow mathematics to deal with the stock market. mathematics will only be able to do that when the answers, john stuart mill and the question
defense on complex minerals and destructive resources don't make a lot of sense, but putting that aside, i think it's a new day. the role of economists has been totally changed in ages d. they're not supposed factor checklist skies they used to be, so i'm hoping for those reasons they have better rules, not just longer ones. i think we've seen some change in that regard and hopefully throughout this year as they were to knock off important priorities that this new paradigm carries forward in folks like you don't have to sue us as much. >> we don't like suing either. we always believe with all due deference to the lawyers, it's expensive and second, ultimately what returning to achieve is to make sure they show us get a better outcome to the deliberative process to regulate and you do when the force. >> already mentioned the staff study that went out on money market funds. it is revolutionary in so many ways, david. it is untouched by policymakers. i'll confess i didn't even read it before one on the website. we put it up there. there's an appendix i can't read because it's in math. it is u

are not that much work for a defense that had nothing philadelphians are more murderous than many other folks. but when you have almost as many guns as you have people in this country invariably come and they end up in the hands of folks who should not have been. we try to pass in philadelphia and did get this will buy. the simple idea you have to report your weapon lost or stolen, if you had to make a claim to your insurance company, you have to report it stolen. the nra sued him a 100 day to decimate on the proudest moments of my entire political career. [applause] so it is a distraction in the distraction the nra and money and intimidating tag takes. we have to be prepared to fight back in similar ways, not what i talked about earlier. they have guided and done their best to underfund through congress the ats not confirm a director, take away ability to keep that information for law enforcement or process. if you're going to solve a problem, you need to know which you're going to solve solve any data and information. they've taken every possible step to block the agency or the cdc or anyon
? you're not going to send out social security checks? you're not going to pay defense contractors? that's what is involved here. >> one more, and then -- >> sure. well, if democrats feel it's dangerous, i mean, isn't it to the republicans strategic advantage to just, you know, get to that point and get as much as they can out of your party? >> no because i don't think that is a weapon that will move us. >> [inaudible] >> what? >> it's not that dangerous that it pushes you to -- >> no, it's damn dangerous. it's very dangerous. it's so dangerous that this country should not toy with it. the president essentially says i don't want to be leveraged that way because you're essentially leveraging this country, not me, but this country. >> republicans in the wyoming legislaturemented to use up employment reform and payroll tax cut bill from last year to drug test unemployed people. the labor department has not issued guidelines for this, but will this year and presumably other states do the same thing. what do you think of that? >> the only two provisions that we argued about in the conference
for a defense to say 100 million, which some people, including somebody i know quite well says is feasible. but the 510. so if you reduce it substantially, where's the rest going to come from? they would have to come in substantial part, i think, from the domestic side and i think if you look at what's happened and what is going to happen if we continue on this path to health research, nih, and i say this in a personal way because of family involvement in health research. when my wife started working, running it peer-reviewed group on child development and child mental health, if there were 100 applications for the peer review group that she ran, they would set aside 50. the staff, my wife would set aside 50 is not very strong. they would take the other 50 and peer review would come out with 15 or 20 highly ranked. and i bet tony, maybe half would be funded. today, it is lucky if two or three are funded. and what's true for child mental health and development is true for medical research is true across the board in most areas of nih. this is not a question of starving the beast. this is a
that to accomplish that you have to look at every part of the budget. you have to look at defense spending, you have to clearly -- and focus on -- look at health care costs which are growing faster than the economy. we have to fix our social security system which makes promises that are bigger than what we can, that we can pay out down the road. we have to raise revenues. we've started down that path, but what we haven't done is look at how to do it while overhauling the tax system which when you want to raise revenues, you can do it in a way that's bad or good for the economy. it helps competitiveness and modernizes our tax system. so we kind of know what the answers are. we're going to fight about the specifics of all of them, but we know what a big deal that would fix the problem would look like. but we don't know at what point the political system is going to be willing to make all those choices which are are difficult, compromise on both sides and put this issue to rest so we can go back to fighting about all the other things that we're going to fought about. but i think the fact that you can s
washington d.c. hackers to fraud. that is a second amendment right goes too far to extend the right of self-defense that the supreme court found to emulate the home is another question entirely. i think ultimately probably what happens in congress is not going to be greatly affect getting greatly constrained by what the supreme court is going to allow. the court on things like regulation of a particular type of guns, waiting periods, background checks and things like that will probably be willing to allow that sort of thing. >> i watch you all to know that it just not been sending to my wife while she's away. those of you getting here in time, i know this is a big appointment every day. you may not have seen nightly news tonight, the chuck todd had a report and i thought it would share that with you and then get with you, congressman. universal background check will push hard for that. prohibition of high-capacity ammunition magazines with anything above 10 rounds. 30 round magazines used to do. some type of assault weapons ban, antitrafficking legislation to impose civil penalties, one unannounced
by the federal government by the year 2025. that means the money that the government spends on national defense, transportation, veterans health care and other government programs will have to be borrowed, driving us even further into debt. c.b.o. issued a report last june which warned that unless we work to reduce our debt, we face the increased probability of a sudden fiscal crisis that would cause investors to lose confidence in the government's ability to manage its budget and the government would, thereby, lose its ability to borrow at these affordable rates. i don't want to experience the day when our creditors decide we're no longer credit-worthy and america has to suffer the same consequences as the countries who have ignored their debt crisis. we need look no farther than the current situation than countries in europe to see what high-level national debt will do to a country's economic health. last week one of the major credit rating agencies, fitch, warns that america risks the lose -- losing its triple a rating if congress fails to agree to a credible plan. fitch's warning is another
